Sweet Indulgences - Fig and Honey Greek Yogurt

I love fresh figs and have been using them in every dish I can since we are near the end of their growing season. Their delicate sweetness and texture are so wonderful.  They are luxurious and a California treat for me since I never had them growing up in Missouri.  For breakfast this morning I put Black Mission figs in my yogurt and it was so delicious ... I almost licked the bowl!  There are endless combination possibilities ... I'd love to hear your suggestions!

Fig and Honey Greek Yogurt

Recipe by Laura Ashman Jolna
Servings:  1

  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt (I use Fage 0%)
  • cinnamon - generous shake 
  • 2 tsp fig preserves (I used Dalmatia Fig Spread)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2-3 fresh Black Mission figs, sliced
  • Mix all ingredients together in small bowl with a whisk. Top with fresh sliced figs and enjoy!
Other ways I love using figs:
  • sliced figs on toasted english muffins w/ ricotta cheese, cinnamon & a drizzle of honey - heavenly!
  • roasted in the oven at 425° for 15 minutes ... I put these on everything and even mix them in the yogurt
  • sliced in oatmeal honey cereal
  • sliced in salads ... love them with feta cheese and arugula!
  • in black forest ham and swiss cheese panini 
To learn more about how to buy, store and serve fresh figs, read Molly Watson's great article All About Figs on About Local Foods.
